'Taken out of it' means that somewhere hidden in the source code this parameter is ignored (or, even causes something strange?). But the interface of G4UserLimits still offers this (as a parameter in its constructor, and as a member function). Since the max step size was the first among the arguments of the constructor, I understand that it was not taken out, since in this case all arguments would shift by one, and having default arguments, this would cause much bigger problems than the current one, when compiling old code. But I would prefer a warning message and an abort in the case the user tries to set maxstepsize in G4UserLimits. This would certainly draw the attention of developers to the change. And, the member function setting this parameter could have been removed from the source code, again a 'hint' for developers that this functionality has been removed from this class. The tutorials still suggest this way of limiting the step size.
Thank you, Daniel
